H+T Affordability Index For Planning And Performance Measures Under MAP-21
Communities across the country have used the Center for Neighborhood Technology's (CNT) Housing + Transportation (H+T)® Affordability Index to more fully grasp and act on the relationship between development patterns, transportation behavior and household transportation costs.
This training and discussion explored how to effectively use the H+T Affordability Index for performance measures and in support of regional transportation planning under MAP-21. The training was held Sept. 30 in New Orleans, LA, by the Center for Planning Excellence and the Louisiana Public Health Institute and made available via webinar.
The two main goals of this session:
- To demonstrate how H+T Affordability data and metrics may be used in the development of performance measures for regional transportation plans; and
- To explore how MPOs and state DOTs might make effective use of H+T data and metrics for walkability, transit access, employment access and other measures at the neighborhood level.
The training was sponsored by Transportation for America (T4A) with funding by the Rockefeller Foundation.
